$ 150  

In this class, students will be taking a queue from Mother Nature and their own fabric choices. Students will be able to work on a 16” x 16 “ or smaller piece.
We will start by learning how to sew our curvy foundations. Then we will layout the designs elements that we wish to paint, followed by exploring different free motion stitching options. Finally, we will learn basic fabric painting techniques to add depth to our design elements. This class is incorporates many options for designs as well as fun little tricks to make things easier!

A sewing machine with a free motion foot and either a topstitching or a ¼” foot is a must.

We have 5 machines available to borrow if you can’t bring your own. Please contact Liz Kettle lizkettle@gmail.com to reserve your machine.
